7:47 pm
nighttime entertainment as a permitted use within the western [inaudible] were mixed-use district >> supervisor can >> thank you president to. colleagues i ask for your support on this cleanup legislation for western summit plan which we passed last march. by 2013. it was a plan that gone through seven-year process. it is a very detailed and complex plan allowing multiple types of uses whether pdr, office rowing residential, and of course nightlife. in our western neighborhood. there are 2 key pieces of the plan. both institutions that we've been working with at the time of the plan that made some oversight for around their inclusion. one, allowing elementary and secondary schools and childcare in the rcd zone of the western summit plan which was original intention. not realizing that the growth of some of these sites would be prevented by prohibition on any larger than
7:48 pm
25,000 square feet and a regional commercial district. this plan would allow a school to grow larger to that size. we currently only have one public school [inaudible] in the stock market neighborhood and it's incredibly important to the stable to ensure we have more schools growing in this area and the site in particular. we have a growing [inaudible] immersion school for the city of [inaudible] that we would like to see continue to expand on 10th street. on 2nd was a issue that colleagues were [inaudible] the 11th straight entertainment core door. in our zoning changes to prohibit residential and or to put conflicts between the listing nightclub life one that is particularly reflective of our lgt community we had an oversight with parcel that had existing entertainment use in the future site of [inaudible] run by one of our well-known
7:49 pm
queens [inaudible] were hoping that they will get their 21st birthday on polson street on the stock market and this cleanup will allow them to exist on the site where entertainment is already currently in use and you want to recognize supervisor winner and supervisor, was critical sponsorship of this cleanup language. >> supervisor winner >> thank you mister president and i want to thank supervisor kim in her office for their work on this important legislation regarding the western soma plan. we know that nightlife plays a huge role in our city in terms of the cultural life in terms of the lgt community. also in terms of our economy is a $4.2 billion industry employed 53,000 people. it contributes about $55 million to our city budget in terms of local tax revenues.
7:50 pm
all too often, nightlife has been treated as a problem to be addressed in our city as opposed to the economic and engine and cultural engine for our city. so, very frequently unfortunately zoning is a real challenge around ensuring that nightlife can thrive in our city and that nightlife can continue even in places where it's historically existed and of course zoning is important to there are areas that are appropriate for nightlife areas and not appropriate. but particularly when you have an area like western soma, which has historically been such a key part of our nightlife in the lgt community, and when you see the news that have historically been nightlife venues that are at risk of or in effectively banned from having nightlife, that's a great
7:51 pm
cause of concern. one of the concerns that i had with the western soma plan and when and why i voted against it was because i thought it was not sufficiently supportive of the important role of the nightlife plays in western soma and was actually designed to reduce the number of permissible nightlife venues. in the western soma neighborhood. so i wasn't able to support the plan. but i am very appreciative of that were able to move forward with this text. in order to allow this location to resume its role as a nightlife venue. i'm incredibly excited that that [inaudible] formally known as [inaudible] is going to be able to restart on a regular basis as a big benefit for the neighborhood. it's a big benefit for the community and it something we should all be celebrating. so, i'm glad to be a cosponsor along with supervisor kim and compost in a report to voting for this item today >> supervisor compost >> thank you i don't repeat all the points that have been
7:52 pm
made. the one thing i agree with everything that's been said by supervisor kim and supervisor winner. the one thing i would add is that i think this provides an opportunity to have an anchor lgt business in an area that already has strong lg bt presence and strong lg bt history. it makes some strands that it would be key shack, with [inaudible] the cleanup doing this. so i want to thank supervisor kim and her office. supervisor winner anna for supporting this effort. and hopefully by the time this opens maybe [inaudible] will be able to use her facebook page as who she is. thank you >> without any further discussion, colleagues can we take this item in call? that objection this ordinance is passed on the 1st reading. madam clerk when we go to local
7:53 pm
>> the 1st member to introduce new business supervisor obelisk >> supervisor avalos [inaudible] supervisor compost >> thank you very much. colleagues, i have a number of items that i'm into saying today. beginning with what is landmark legislation to deal with a very important issue of gender pay inequity. despite passage of the equal pay act of 1963, which happened more than 50 years ago, which actually requires that men and women the same workplace be given equal pay for equal work the gender gap in paper says. since [inaudible] 2011 shows that the average woman still earns $.70 on the dollar for every dollar that is earned by a man. the pay gap is even greater for african-american women and latinas. african-american women earned $.64 on the dollar and latinas 56. women comprise more
7:54 pm
than 50 percent of the labor force in the united states and the consequences of this wage discrimination are not just impact on women but it actually impacts the entire family. it impacts the entire country. it means that women are having a hard time making ends meet and keeping up with inflation. in san francisco we are experiencing and affordability crisis and we have seen that we have the fastest-growing automotive were now going to address that inequality unless we actually close this gender pay gap. equal pay for equal work means that we can grow the middle class and build a broader economic base for our country. equal pay for equal work is therefore not only on woman's issue. it's an issue for every single american. the legislation that i am introducing today is aimed at making equal pay for equal work in reality at hundreds of san francisco workplaces. the legislation is modeled after
7:55 pm
president obama's recent federal directive that requires federal contractors to report compensation data including data on the race and gender of employees. to the federal opposite contact clients. my legislation and i want to thank supervisor kim for cosponsoring this legislation and her leadership in this issue -- i legislation will do the following: it adds a new section to the administrative codes on distribution provision. it requires all city contractors with at least 20 employees to submit an annual equal pay report to the city's human rights commission. this confidential report will include summary, session information for employees identified by sex, bi gender and race. the legislation creates an initial [inaudible]. time ring which the human rights commission will be
7:56 pm
charged with convening a working group to design a data collection system that is best suited to identify if wage discrimination is taking place. the purpose of this working group is to ensure a thorough accurate, data collection system that also minimizes administrative burdens on city contractors. the board of supervisors, the mayor's office, the commission on the status of women, will work and are asked to work with the human rights commission on this working group. after an initial period of time if the human rights commission that believes that wages just commission has occurred at a particular business, the commission can proactively investigate that business to determine whether workers receive equal pay for equal work. if the human rights commission determines that the employer has violated equal pay laws the commission can recommend that the city department that contract with the company issue penalties against the company, including
7:57 pm
up to termination or suspension of any outstanding contract with the city. it is the 1st time that such powers has been given to any government agency in this country. the human rights commission will report annually to the board of supervisors on it data it collects and any [inaudible] the number of investigations will commence based on the information received and the number of contractors that were penalized for violating equal pay laws here in san francisco. discrimination based on gender and race is already prohibited in the city's administrative code. as well as by federal law. nevertheless, the human rights commission only enforces those provisions when individuals actually file actions based on an allegation of discrimination. the problem is though that it is simply difficult for women to determine whether they are victims of wage discrimination because as a 2011 survey from the institute for women's
7:58 pm
policy research found that half the workers report that the discussion of wage and salary is either discouraged or prohibited work could lead to punishment. in other words, many companies ensure that the pay schedules and salary schedules are not there's a call to our secrecy around compensation [inaudible] continues. this legislation is groundbreaking in that it provides the human rights commission that data to proactively investigate businesses without having to rely on individual worker complaints and therefore ensuring equal pay at hundreds of businesses that contract with the city and county of san francisco. this legislation is also unique in that it contains consequences for contractors violating equal pay laws. if after an investigation human
7:59 pm
rights commission believes discrimination has been occurred the contractor can pay monetary oddities and risk losing the contract with the city. i believe that this legislation would put san francisco on the map as one of the leaders in this country in ensuring that finally, after decades, more than 50 years, that we will finally secure equal pay for equal work in this country. i want to especially thank all of the amazing organizations that work with us on this piece of legislation. in particular, the california national organization for women. whose president flew from los angeles yesterday to be at this press conference. i especially want to acknowledge the tremendous work that my chief of staff, hillary ronan, put into making this legislation possible. the next piece of legislation than introducing today is something that has been in the works for
8:00 pm
actually a number of years and it is yet another piece of legislation that addresses the challenges that women face in san francisco. as you know, planned parenthood open in my district more than 3 years ago and almost immediately upon the opening of planned parenthood staff and patients at this clinic have been harassed and intimidated by protesters in front of its doors. the freestanding clinic sits before a relatively narrow sidewalk. those of you have been to see it. every week, as women enter the clinic to receive reproductive health services, they must pass i several protesters who scream things like, don't kill your baby or abortion cause breast cancer. they are forced to walk by a barrage of posters lining the streets. the 8 foot tall posters contain pictures of bloody fetuses at different stages of gestation and in
